Vermont

 Our trip to Vermont was very eye opening.  Someone is very talented and doesn't mind wasting hay.  We also saw one where they did a Semi truck in red, but I didn't get the picture.
 One of the things that we saw a lot of and that was solar panels.   This particular property had like 10 rows of the panels.
 The hubby and I thought that these silos on the back of this barn were pretty neat.
We have thought of moving out of New York state and going to Vermont.  They do have the mountains and trees.  He wants to go to a state that has the changing weather and yet have trees and mountains.  We thought of going west, but the husband does not like dry arid climates that have no trees and mountains.

My birthday weekend turned out to be a lovely time.  We went to the Vermont Teddy Bear company and antiquing.  We went out to a lovely restaurant for dinner on Friday night.  We were going to stay Saturday night and go to the ice castle, but unfortunately, we had the car and the weather predicted 8 to 14 inches of snow and had storm warnings out.  We decided that we really did not want to get caught in Vermont with the car and not make it home.  So, needless to say we were home by Saturday evening.

I have never been to Vermont what was that old Bob Newhart show with the Darrells and the other brothers Darrell that was supposed to be in Vermont! That is what I think of for Vermont! Hope you bought something at the Teddy Bear Store and I bet the antique shops were fun:)

Vermont is an incredibly beautiful and lonely state. In some places the mountains close in and almost obscure the sun. At one time Vermont had the most suicides in the nation. I don't know if that is still true. It is a great place to visit, but I for one would not want to live there.
